Officials said she was rescued on February 8, and after running a few tests they found out that Pippi was dehydrated, underweight and suffered from an infected front flipper.
She is now receiving fluids and medicine to help combat her condition.
The Aquarium’s Animal Rescue believes that Pippi is about one-month-old, as she still has a small amount of baby fur that normally starts to shed between the age of three to four weeks, according to the release.READ MORE: Pause In Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Could Delay Maryland's Goals As Baltimore City Emerges As Potential New Hotspot
